On the agenda for January 10 BOE meeting.

Tomorrow night the Ridgewood Board of Education will meet for a regular public meeting at 7:30 p.m. at the Ed Center, 3rd floor. (Come on down and watch in person, or watch live on TV Channel 77 or online click here.)

Some highlights from the agenda:

We’ll see a presentation of the middle school program of studies for 2011-12. It’s basically the exact same program of studies as currently, but with a change to the 8th grade algebra course for special ed students.

Dr. Fishbein will update us on various referendum projects, mostly work on the additions at Ridge and Hawes schools.

The Board will be asked to approve the school calendar for 2011-2012. I participated in the Calendar Committee – along with teachers, other staff, parents, students – and let me tell you, it is harder than one would think to come up with a calendar.

The Board will be asked to approve the disenrollment of a student found to be in violation of the District’s residency requirement.

Members of the BOE will discuss our response to the Planning Board’s invitation to a hearing regarding the lights at RHS Stadium and Stevens Fields. We will also discuss the list of RHS neighbor concerns and progress that’s been made to date.

Those are the highlights. You can see the entire agenda by clicking here.
